Learn More: Why MAT loves Disney Cruise Line

Remember, at Mom Approved Travel, one of our core beliefs is Moms should get a vacation too. What this means is, Mom should actually enjoy going on a Disney Cruise vacation – she should not be stressing or spending her precious time spending hours researching all the packing things, or making sure she doesn’t miss important payment, activity or check-in deadlines.  Mom can spend her time and energy elsewhere when she partners with Mom Approved Travel to book her Disney Wish cruise!

Disney Wish Kids Clubs & Youth Program

No one does Kids Clubs like Disney Cruise Line!

The Disney Wish – Kids Club & Youth Program Overview

We have warned you, your kids will NEVER want to leave the ship because Disney truly is the absolute best cruise line for kids. Our favorite part about bringing the kids on a Disney cruise, Oceaneer Club, Oceaneer Lab, Vibe and Edge are included in your cruise fare!

Oceaneer Club (3-12) complimentary

The central rotunda and its twinkling ceiling and stage acts as a hub to 4 different lands to explore and play. Here, kids can watch favorite Disney movies on a huge plasma screen, enjoy an engaging story time and receive special in-person and virtual visits from favorite Disney Character friends.

A state-of-the-art Magic PlayFloor allows kids to interact with the 103″ plasma screen as they ask Crush from Finding Nemo during Crush chats (similar to Turtle Talk with Crush at Walt Disney World) or enjoy a simulated tilt maze!

  • Fairytale Hall – 3 activity rooms engage your children with some of their favorite stories in Rapunzel’s Art Studio, Belle’s Library and Anna and Elsa’s Summer cabin where you will hunt for Snowgies and snowball fight with Olaf!

Edge (11-14) complimentary

Tweens have their very own space to chill and have fun on the Disney Wish filled with activities, photobooth, tv, video games and a tween-focused space designed with New York trendy urban loft theming.

With electronics,tables, and gaming stations, there are plenty of ways to chill with fellow tweens while enjoying music, arts and crafts, karaoke, scavenger hunts, selfie walls, Vibe takeovers and themed nights of fun!

Vibe (14-17) complimentary

Teens get their very own space to call their own, designed with teenagers interests in mind. They can engage, hang or chill while mingling or doing their thing while chaperoned by counselors who are “cool” enough to be fun.

The indoor area has an artist’s loft vibe to it, while the teen only pool deck gives teens a place to enjoy the coffee bar, smoothies, listen to music, engage during fun video and virtual-reality game session, join in dance parties, play games, have karaoke competitions and play non-lame games in the nearby Hideaway club meant for teens and young adults.

Nursery (under 3) fee required

Even the tiniest guests have an option to play in a colorful, fun childcare center while you enjoy time with the older kiddos or date night!

Note: It’s a Small World Nursery DOES have an additional cost, and we do suggest making reservations as capacity is limited. Reservations can be made on a first-come, first-served basis during open house on your cruise Embarkation Day or anytime throughout your sailing.

Disney Wish Dining Options

Dining onboard the Disney Wish

You really will need to pack your stretchy pants, because no matter what you are craving, no matter what mood you are in, or what time of day it is, the Disney Wish has something delicious to eat!

A Rotational Dining experience only Disney Cruise can do

One of the other areas where Disney Cruise line stands out is with the rotational dining options onboard, which is equivalent to a Dining Room experience on other cruise lines. But trust us, this experience is unlike ANY OTHER cruise line out there. Each ship has 3 themed dining venues on board, each offer a wide variety of options for every taste. Even the pickiest of kiddos will not go away hungry, promise!

  • Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure – exclusive to the Disney Wish, enjoy Norwegian inspired fare (don’t worry there are options for even the pickiest of eaters!) in a beautiful hall with a live performance featuring Elsa, Anna, Ola, Oaken, and Kristoff as you celebrate Anna and Kristoff’s engagement!

  • World of Marvel  – with a menu bringing inspiration from all over the world, be prepared to enjoy some of your favorite characters during Avengers: Quantum Encounter where you will interactively participate with your table’s own Quantum Core to help save the day and keep your eyes out for your friendly neighborhood Spiderman!

Our favorite part about Disney rotational dining is your servers move WITH you. Brace yourself for unmatched service. They get to know your kids and their preferences. We promise, these Cast Members will be one of your kid’s favorite parts of their sailing and they will be talking about their server long after you return home.

Disney Wish Casual and Grab and Go Dining options

Looking for something quick so you and the family can hop back into the pool? No worries!

Adult Only Dining on the Disney Wish

Disney Cruise Line offers an Adult only dining option on the Disney Wish perfect for date night or or brunch!

Dining at Enchante and Palo does require a reservation, is not included in your cruise fare, and subject to an additional charge; but your Mom Approved Travel Advisor can assist you in deciding if this something you would find valuable to splurge for.

24 Hour Room Service on the Disney Wish

Unlike other cruise lines, in-room dining is complementary (though a few select snacks and adulty beverages do have an additional cost). Lunch and dinner options like burgers, pizza, sandwiches, and grilled options are available all day, except during breakfast hours, where a continental breakfast is served.

Snacks are the BEST part about Disney Cruise in-room dining! Milk and cookies before bed? Mickey bar at midnight? Your dreams will come true!

Disney Wish Pools and Water Playareas

The Disney Wish has plenty of spaces to splash around onboard!

Plenty of ways to cool off and splash around on the Disney Wish

There are plenty of ways to enjoy pool time on the Disney Wish in pools, slide and water play areas, though it will look a little different than layouts of prior DCL ships with multiple wading pools to spread out families a bit.

Senses Spa & Salon

Senses Spa & Salon onboard the Wish is probably one of our MAT favorites in all of the DCL ships. The Wish offers a wide variety of spa experiences, but one of our absolute favorites is the Rainforest Room. You will also find options for massage, stone therapies, facials, cosmetic treatments and more.

Salon services such as manicures, pedicures, blowouts, up-dos, and more are also available. 

Lounges & Nightclubs

Many of these lounges are open to families during the day, but when night falls, several become adult-exclusive areas catering to the grownups!

Frequently Asked Questions
about a Disney Cruise

Booking your Disney Cruise with a Mom Approved Travel Advisor is complimentary for most cruise vacations. There are some unique circumstances, we may charge a service fee which will be disclosed upfront. There are no hidden fees working with Mom Approved Travel.

If you have already booked your Disney Cruise with Disney Travel Company, depending on the circumstances we MAY be able to transfer it to the agency to allow your Advisor to assist without a fee within 30 days of booking, if you are outside of final payment.

If we are unable to transfer a cruise, we do offer a concierge planning option based on your needs.

Booking your Disney Cruise through Mom Approved Travel means you get dedicated access to a Professional Travel Planner who specializes in Disney Cruises who can tailor a trip for your family.

To get started, simply fill out our DISNEY CRUISE QUOTE REQUEST FORM and one of our Advisors will contact you for a quick, free consultation.

Absolutely! MAT Advisors are experienced understanding and setting up families with a wide range of special needs for success. Some of our Travel Advisors have backgrounds in special education, special needs in their own families, or hold certifications from IBCCES. 

Whether it is dietary restrictions, physical handicap, neuro-divergent challenges, cognitive disabilities, hearing or visual disabilities, service animal travel or beyond, your MAT Advisor has the knowledge and expertise to make your Disney Cruise as comfortable as possible, so everyone can enjoy the fun!

Payment terms and conditions are set by the supplier, in this case, Disney Cruise Line.

Deposits: If you are booking a cruise further out, you may only need to pay a deposit to hold your trip. Final payment dates vary and are usually based on length of cruise.

All cruise payment requirements vary based on the supplier, but your MAT Travel Advisor can answer questions about your specific sailing.

Your payments will be processed into the Disney secure payment portals by your Travel Advisor. The agency does not hold or deposit any of your vacation package funds into our company account.

DCL accepts most major credit cards. Any charges to your credit card will show up as a charge from the supplier, and not Mom Approved Travel.

Funny thing, that “certified Disney Travel Agent” term gets tossed around quite a bit- but no such term legally exists.

There are strict regulations set forth by Disney what Travel Advisors and Travel Agencies can call themselves in the legal mumbo jumbo. Believe us, you WANT a Professional Travel Advisor who understands terms & conditions well! Certified Disney Cruise Travel Agent is not one of them.

However, Mom Approved Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. We EARNED this designation given to us by Disney. All of our Travel Advisors are Graduates of the Disney College of Knowledge. Our Advisors hold various certifications through travel industry associations with the highest professional standards.

When you book with Mom Approved Travel, you are hiring a trustworthy Travel Professional who specializes in Disney destinations.

Your MAT Advisor will be happy to review age requirements for the specific cruise you would like to sail with you.

Yes, it is a US Public Health Service rule that only potty trained children many enter swimming pools, hot tubs or spas on any cruise ship.

Swim diapers are NOT permitted In Disney pools, spas, hotubs or on water slides such as the AquaDuck, AquaLab and AquaDunk and AquaMouse.

Each of the DCL ship do have a water play area which allows littles who are not potty trained and use a swim diaper to utilize special water play areas:

  • Nemo’s Reef on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy
  • Nephew’s Spash Zone on the Disney Magic
  • Dory’s Reef on the Disney Wonder
  • Toy Story Splash Zone on the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure

Yes they do! Castaway Cay in the Bahamas and Lighthouse Point in Eluthra are exclusively for Disney Cruise guests. Your MAT  Advisor can help you find an itinerary and date that works best for you to visit them!

Disney Cruise Line started with the very first ship, the Disney Magic and has expanded its fleet over over time. Right now is an exciting time for Disney Cruise Line as they are again investing into the fleet and building new ships. You can see all of the current Disney Cruise ships here on our dedicated Disney Cruise Line Fleet page.
